I am headed to Andalusia/ Southern Spain

Home to Moorish castles like the above pictured Real Alcazar (Water Gardens of Dorn to Game of Thrones fans), gorgeous gardens and good food!

Cordoba is also home to the famous Calleja de Flores - street of flowers. This lovely alleyway is lined with flowers and has a wonderful view of the Cathedral tower.
